Horse Tracks 1/9/10 - Sharpe, Little HOF finalists; Broncos deny Redskins interview with RBs Coach Turner; Carroll to Seahawks


DP - Broncos deny Redskins a chance at Turner - Jeff Legwold
"Two league sources said Friday night the Broncos have denied permission to newly-hired Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan to interview Denver running backs coach Bobby Turner...Shanahan has told others in the league he has interest in Broncos offensive line coach Rick Dennison. Dennison is also being considered by Texans coach Gary Kubiak for that team’s offensive coordinator job."

DPP - It's wait and see for Sharpe and Hall induction - Jeff Legwold
"It's always good to be the topic of discussion when that's the topic," Sharpe said. "I'm going to try not to get as wrapped up in it as I was last year. I guess I'll wait and see. You know, I've done all I can do. You can't add any more to your resume — that's it."

LTC - 1st-round pick Ayers refocuses - Brian Howell
"I didn’t accomplish any of the things I wanted to do as a person and as a team, but it’s definitely a learning experience, and I definitely have a lot of things to improve on to get better," he said.
